Tough Times

The Great Depression
We're hearing and reading more and more every week about job cuts, housing forclosures, and worldwide recession. The bad economic news doesn't seem to have hit our area too much yet, but things could sure change quickly. I was reading a story this morning about a family in Georgia that put up all their belongings for auction on Ebay, and the winning bidder paid, but refuses to take their stuff. The winner was interviewed and said that they had been fortunate and were in a position to help someone that needed it. It turned out to be quite the help too... $20,000!

Not everyone is so kind with their gifts. The following Youtube audio file demonstrates that you need to be careful who you take gifts from! Listen to whole one minute audio file for the rest of the story... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1WkugIj6y...
